Raccoons are huge corn-lovers, and they will destroy the corn in your garden in a hurry. Keeping them out of your garden is imperative to protecting your corn.
Placing a motion-activated sprinkler near where the problem area is will help to scare the raccoons away.
Raccoons can be scared of noises as well. You can leave a radio close to the problem area to try and scare them away.
They can also be deterred by a mixture of garlic and chili powder sprinkled around the problem areas.
You can also set up a small animal cage trap to catch the raccoon if all else fails!
